Oh crap I forgot cause I was so young but I just remembered.

I played nightmare creatures when I was 3 years old. Had nightmares for the following years the images wouldn't leave me. Well that's the real one sorry if I disappointed anyone.

Sometime after christmas 2014, i bought my first 2 M-rated games, Bayonetta 1 and 2 for the Wii U. If it was 2014-ish, i was 18 at the time, so at the right age.

I loved the games, loved the title character, voted for her in Smash, and now she's my icon. :D:D:D

Mortal Kombat! Many of my friends were saying "it's blood, violence, guts and my mom won't let me play it." I told my parents about it and my stepdad rented the Sega version. He says "Al, what's the blood code, I know you know it."

It was probably Vandal Hearts for the PS1. It was 1997 so I was 13 when I first played it. Good old 90s ♥

I've never played any "Rated M for Mature" game in my life, and I don't intend on doing so anytime soon. I don't believe that having excessive swearing, violence, blood and gore is what makes any video game great (and no, don't try to talk me into playing certain popular M-rated franchises because "everybody else is playing them.)

Ah, M-rated games... the type of games that my parents never allowed me to even touch when I was a kid, let alone actually play. Perhaps partially because of that, I never really had a desire to play any M-rated games until I was much older, unlike some of my classmates who happily proclaimed ownership of the likes of Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto (yeesh).

That said, the first M-rated game I actually played was Halo when I was about 15-16 years old. I felt pretty naughty playing it, even though - for the most part - the actual level of violence wasn't that much worse than a lot of T-rated games. It wasn't until I bought my first M-rated game - Metal Gear Solid, about three years later - that I learned what a real M-rated game was like.

I played GTA when I was in high school. It was fun for the first several months I played, but now it fails to appeal to me.

I think the only M-rated game I've played is Shin Megami Tensei 4, and I got it earlier this year (I was 18 and now I'm 19). It was on sale and it looked interesting. So far I haven't noticed anything that bad in it.

At first I thought Chrono Cross was M-rated, but it was T-rated, so that doesn't count.

However, what counts is Bayonetta 2, which is in fact an M-rated title. Oh, and there's SMT IV, but I haven't gotten far yet.

Thanks for reading.

I think I was 7 or 8 and my sister and I unlocked the Lost Treasures of Shao Khan on Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and we always chose Supreme Demonstration. The Babalities in that one were the only thing that creeped me out otherwise I thought those Fatalities were so cool haha

Here in Australia, the equivalent of M would be MA15+ (note that we do have a M rating in Australia, but it is equivalent to a T rating in the US). I think the first MA15+ game I played might have been Grand Theft Auto III (I was over 15 at the time), but I don't remember which game though. I haven't played a R18+ game though (which was only introduced in 2013).

Metal Gear Solid 3 when I was either 11 or 12, and it is still one of my favorite video games of all time.

Parasite Eve. It's probably quaint in comparison to stuff nowadays.
